Happy Samday!

Happy Dogs on Thursday, little Friday, and most of all, happy belated first birthday to my niece Sam. 


That’s her cake, from our local Sammy Snacks.  Sam actually gets her kibble and some snacks from there too.  (Their fiber content wasn’t high enough for Sissy’s special needs.)  My girls were invited to the party, but sadly my own holiday party plans conflicted.  (However, thanks to Rosanne and her household’s early Christmas gift, my girls are Sammy Snacking just the same!  They’re crazy for the cranberry flavor.)

sam12Sam’s a big girl, but my sister did only allow her a bit of cake before the rest was packaged up to be special treats for the future. 

If you’re not familiar with doggy bakery cakes, that’s not sugar.  They’re made with human-grade ingredients, but the “frosting” isn’t sweet at all.  The dogs don’t seem to mind, but I won’t bother licking my fingers next time I serve some.

sam2Sam also had to suffer through a holiday photo shoot over the weekend.  I’m pretty sure this isn’t the one they’re going to use, but I lurvers it!  Belly rubs are popular with the fur-girls in our family.

Happy birthday, Sam!  We’ll have to meet up at the dog park after Gretchen has her next round of puppy shots later this month.  Sam and Sissy have a ball together, but they’re rather rambunctious, so Gretchen will have to be up to the challenge!

Don’t forget to visit the other Dogs on Thursday folks!

    Ack! What a let-down that frosting taste would be 🙂
    That really looks like a real cake. My eyes are tired and at first glance I didn’t notice the bone shape and wondered…who is Sam??

  3. Mary says:

    Oh that looks like a giant bone cookie! Yummmmmie for sure in their eyes!
    I love the chair pic, definitely happy pup there!
    Happy Birthday Sam!!

    Now I don’t feel bad about celebrating my animals birthdays!:) A lot of people just don’t understand this! They’re family! Love Sam in the red chair!

    That picture of Sam is adorable. I remember the first time we got a 3 Dogs Bakery cake and Krystle decided she wanted to taste it because it was all human grade. She nibbled on a corner and deemed it fit for dogs but not humans! g

  6. I’m in trouble around here. It seems the dogs in other households get bakery cakes for their birthdays. Nicki has done it twice recently. Now my pups think they should have one, too. I like the idea, too. Convincing the male spousal unit will be the tricky part.

    Sam is definitely a cutie! And what a neat cake. I wonder what she looked like after she’d eaten a bit.

    Happy birthday to Sam! And I won’t tell your hubby about my house pony, but I did make him an applesauce meringue cake for his last birthday! Birthday cake makes fur-kids happy, too!

  13. I’ve never heard of a doggie bakery. I’m guessing there are none around here!
